    Summary

    For weeks and months, Legolas has felt a pull - and dares not name it, does not heed its stormy-sky warnings, does not track the ebb and flow on the shoreline of his life.

    Here’s the thing about the tide, though: it rises whether one wills it or not.

    Summary

    The stairs creak, and Martin freezes. Sasha has the decency to stop in her tracks and look up, eyes darting to the door. “That's not good.”
    “What's he even doing up here?” Other than coming to kill me, supplies Martin's mind helpfully. “I thought he was sorting through donation receipts today!”
    “One of us can distract him,” Sasha offers, and immediately sneezes. “Not me though. Allergy's a dead giveaway.”
    “I'm not legally allowed to move,” says Tim, making no move to dislodge either of the two kittens currently attached to him. “Sorry, Martin.”

    (In which Martin embarks on a hopeless quest to hide four cats and a monumental crush from his boss, Jon indulges his anarchist streak, and Tim and Sasha have no qualms encouraging shenanigans.)

    Summary

    He peers between the branches at the spiderweb, gently pushing some away to get a better view. He wonders what kind of spider it is, if he can catch a glimpse of it. There aren’t that many types in England, but-- 

    Oh. He doesn’t spot the spider, but there’s something else trapped in the middle of the web. A large moth, its wings splayed helpless and immobile. As he watches, he sees its legs wriggle ineffectually in the air. It’s a surprisingly pitiful sight, making Martin’s heart unexpectedly wrench a bit for the poor thing. 

    -

    Martin saves a moth from a spider. He doubts that this decision will have any sort of serious repurcussions.

    Summary

    [Zuko’s phone vibrates underneath his pillow.

    Still half asleep, Zuko bats at it blindly, instinctively trying to turn off an alarm...that won’t turn off. Groaning a little, he manages to open his eyes just enough to blink blearily at the screen, and it takes an embarrassingly long time to register that the reason he can’t turn his alarms off is because someone’s trying to call him.

    Not just someone—Sokka is trying to call him.

    It’s 3:23 in the morning.]

    Or,

    Sokka gets into a car accident. He and Zuko both have some feelings about it.
